Can you write to the usb flash drive, usb hard disk or sd card from a laptop? What types of sd cards (sdhd, sdxc) can it read/write? Can you plug in a usb hub and add more devices? Up to how many? Can you plug in a usb device into the standard usb port and micro usb port at the same time. When multiple usb devices are plugged in are they all usable at the same time for reading/writing? Can multiple laptops access and use the internet at the same time?

  • A. Thanks for choosing IOGEAR products. Yes, MediaShair has the ability to upload files to your connected storage media (USB flash drive, HDD or SD Card). The MediaShair Hub supports all current formats of SD card storage and can read and write to SD cards using the available MediaShair App or browser based software. The MediaShair does not support USB hubs for port expansion. MediaShair can only support USB storage devices through the standard USB port. The micro USB port on the MediaShair is designed to charge the internal battery. Yes, when MediaShair Hub is being used as an access point or as a wireless hotspot for Internet connectivity, multiple Wi-Fi enabled devices (i.e. smartphones, tablets, laptops and Ultrabooks) can connect to the Internet simultaneously. Should you have any other questions, please feel free to contact IOGEAR.

Basically, I want to copy photos, music and videos FROM my iPad 2 onto the hub so I can access them later (usually during a long flight). is this possible or do I need to copy the movies and music from my computer instead of the iPad? If I can only copy movies from my computer and not the iPad directly, what format do I need to have the movies in in order to be able to watch them on the iPad?
by MJ 11/5/2014
1 answer
  • A. Photos are no problem to move back and forth. Videos made on the iPad (using the built-in camera) can also be moved back and forth. Music stored on the iPad cannot be moved because iOS does not allow file system access to see where they are stored on the device. You can simply copy the songs from computer onto a USB flash drive or SD card to playback using MediaShair with the iPad. Movies are more difficult. Movies stored on the iPad in the Videos folder cannot be moved since there is no file system access. Movies on your computer that do not have DRM (copy protection) can be saved onto external storage (SD card or USB flash drive) and played using the MediaShair with the iPad. If the movie has DRM or is bought from the iTunes store (nearly all video content on iTunes store has DRM) then it cannot be played using MediaShair, and will only be viewable if installed on the iPad.

The size is small and compact, see my image. It's basically simple to set up and use. Included is a very good step by step (1, 2, 3,) instruction for set up which in reality, only takes minutes to complete. A feature I particular appreciate in addition to the size, is the charging options. It keeps a charge for 9 hours. I can charge it using any computer port but it also comes with a good quality car/cigarette lighter charger. It functions as a power supply too so that I can charge up my phone, tablet, etc. I have IMAC, Mini IPAD, and also tablets with Android operating systems. This works with all of them. For the most part, I keep it plugged into a port on my IMAC to keep it charged but you don't have to. It functions like a wireless router in your house but you can take it any where with you. Share photos, movies, videos, etc. It does so much that you will love it once you use it and discover everything it can do. Take it with you every where you go. It has the SD card reader, USB stick reader, and more. I particularly like using it for sharing photos but it works great to stream HD movies to multiple devices at the same time.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I purchased this product to use with my tablet and phone. I wanted to store movies etc on my hard drive to have more space rather than have my devices crammed and slow. I have yet to test the hard drive feature because the hard drive has not shown up yet. The instructions in the box poorly set up but the information is there for the most part. I had trouble at first because they use a common name for an App but they spell it differently and then when I had the wrong app it was so similar most stuff worked. Now I have the correct app and I can't get it to reliably share WIFI with my phone and tablet at the same time. I have resorted back to logging in with one device or the other. The battery life is decent at approximately 6 hours so far, but it only came with a cord.. no charger. If I ever get the rest of my order I may be inclined to edit this review. As of right now this product has really only deserved a 2 star but I am hopeful it will perform better in the future!

Difficult to setup and connect wirelessly

This hub is intended for sharing media files (photos, videos, music) among devices. I have a lot of mp3 and avi files in my portable hard disk and desktop that i would like to stream to my laptop and phone so i thought this would be useful. The setup experience was not easy for me. I followed the instructions and tried to login wirelessly from my phone to the hub but i couldn't establish the connection. After many tried, I physically connected the wire from my wireless router to the hub and then it worked. I was able to watch a movie on my phone with a video file from a hard disk conencted to the hub. The streaming speed was great, I hardly noticed any lag. However, when I tried to watch the movie on my laptop via the hub, I was not able to do so. So far, it has been a frustrating experience getting the hub to connect to all my devices. If it works, it would be a great product to share my media among my devices.

Just follow the easy directions. It worked fine with both IPhone, Ipad and Nexus 7. I only use it for providing additional back up and transferring selected files with other devices in the family.

Easy setup, supports network bridging, recognizes large format storage, allows playing of most all formats of data... Forget the Dane Media Streamer. This product does it all without needing to "attempt" to receive help from techsupport.
